2012 Sizzles Its Way Into The Record Books

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) –  As 2012 hits the two-thirds mark, National Weather Service officials are confirming something most of us likely suspected — this has been the hottest year on record in St. Louis.

They say the average daily temperature to-date this year has been 65.2 degrees, crushing the old record of 62.9 degrees set way back in 1921.

65 degrees may not sound hot but that factors in temperatures going back to last winter.

National Weather Service officials say highs topped 105 degrees on eleven separate occasions this summer, also a new record for St. Louis.
